A lot of startups or growing companies fail to find enough of programmers locally and seek for help abroad. Many of them have already got their fingers burned with the standard offshoring, most likely trying to outsource to India and similar countries, and now are looking after much higher quality teams.
We at NFQ have come a long way striving to build high-performance remote teams for such companies, always fine tuning the recipe of highly productive remote work. I'll share our guidelines on remote work organisation and coordination practices, helpful technical tricks, our learnings about dealing with the barriers of distance, time zones, culture and language. No fluff, just stuff.
